  1. So giving OSC another try. A mandatory must is data importation (CSV) without the need for arbitrary DB ID#'s and all from a single import file. That means products with a matrix ( attribute/options) do not need a parent product created then exported so that the product ID # can be referenced so that another file containing the matrixed item's can be imported using said ID as the reference. This also means a parent - child controller. Which I believe does exist based on looking at Easy CSV Importer and also Excel Populate for OSC. Both seem to be for version 2.3+ (2.3.3/2.3.4) based on release dates. Using version's 2.3.3 .4 and 2.3.4. Neither worked. Looking at install files - it seems they are for older versions? So can anyone who has said working point me in the correct direction? Which version(s) etc etc.
  2. Hello, if you enter a shop, at least most of them, have as a start page displayed the last products. However, I would like to start with the featured products. I already have installed featured products, but I don't know how to give this command in the php files. Any hints? :-)
  3. Hello, I've been reading on SEO trying to get an understanding of as much as possible. Internal linking has grabbed my attention lately. For those unfamiliar with internal linking, it's linking of one page to another on the same website. In order for the linkage to be effective, there must be some relationship shared between pages linked together. Internal linking is also one of the more than 200 ranking signals considered by Google. This practice is for three reasons according to Moz: site navigation, establish information hierarchy and help spread ranking power around the website. I don't know about anyone else but from experience, the links in the header and footer receive the most internal links. Which leaves the body of the product page and category pages lacking in authority. I know you're thinking, "Isn't that the job of the breadcrumb?". My opinion is the breadcrumb helps but the only effect it has is displaying the trail in the serps. I'm unsure if it does anything otherwise. That's the purpose of this thread: For shop owners to weigh in and share their practices as well as their opinions. Internal Linking hasn't been discussed in detail in this community, if at all. So here's an open platform for shop owners and coders to participate and help move OSCommerce a step further. Maybe a module or few can be developed from a healthy discussion. We all know @@burt and others are eager about advancement of OSC. There's gotta be a solution to help spread the "link juice" from the index page to the the category and product pages. Who knows? It's worth a try. Here's my questions to OSC community: (1) What are your experiences and practices with internal linking? (2) If you've done anything with internal linking, what did you do and how you did it? (3) What effects did it have on your over SEO efforts and search engine rankings? Remember no serious questions or comments are dumb! Let's have a healthy discussion and move OSC forward. Suggested reading: Moz: Quick Sprout:
  4. Hello, happy new year. It's been over a decade since I've done any dev work on osc when a mate helped me create a connector for anz egate ( ) but I remember it fondly as my first real shopping cart and being amazed at what it could do. Thought I would see how things were going because we were asked to look at an oscmax site. Thank you for keeping osc alive. All the best for 2017! Thanks for the memories and moment of reminiscing. Have been doing mainly wordpress and woocommerce in recent years but I'm looking forward to having another look at osc/max. Jez.
